Re: Unknown Refrigerator at Steamtown

Garth Groff <sarahsan@...>
 

Bob,

The MDT articles at my disposal (Hinman and Rydarwicz) do not mention Duryea underframes. That said, according to a document posted on the Steam Era Freight Cars web site ( http://www.steamerafreightcars.com/prototype/frtcars/duryea-mdt-icmain.html ) MDT 9476-9477 and leased IC 51000 were retro-fitted with Duryea underframes as part of a test.

The four MDT cars were M6-2 design from lot 844 built as MDT 94759-8874 sometime between 1947-1950. My two sources don't cover the IC leased cars. These MDT cars were very similar to PFE class R40-23 (Intermountain or Athearn), except for the ends which Hinman says were 4/2/1 (from the drawings with his article they look like 4/3 and are closer to the incorrect Athearn 4/3 ends than Intermountain's correct 3/3).

The Steamtown car has Despatch ends which in current modelers' nomenclature are 5/2/S. Only the 1951-1954 M6-4 cars had these ends. Hinman's article in the May 2002 MM is accompanied by a scale drawing of this class plus he offers a nice low-level shot of NRC 19122 from the same group. Both the plan and the photo do not show any indication of a Duryea underframe.  Based on the evidence, I cannon support the notion of a Duryea underframe on the Steamtown car.

I do not own the Signature Press MDT book. Perhaps someone with a copy can comment on any mention of Duryea underframes.

I'm still hoping for a number for the Steamtown car. Has the car been restored, and has anyone here photographed it in recent years? Of course, I should ask if anyone squatted down to see what sort of underframe it has. I suppose I will have to go back to Steamtown someday and do my own crawling around.

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

Tim,

Does it help to identify the reefer if it had a Duryea underframe?

I believe as built the feefer had a Duryea underframe.

It looks like an IC car to me, Gary.  The indented Murphy ends are the giveaway.

I see them also. Faintly, likely due to them fully catching the sunlight, but they are there.

Hi Gary and List Members,

 

If you look at the image at "Original" resolution, one can faintly (very faintly) make out the diagonals on the near half of the car. They don't show well because the angle of the sun illuminates those diagonals very evenly, and so they seem to disappear unless you do some close inspection.

 

The "Original" resolution image can be viewed at the link below.

 

 

 

You might have to click on the image in some browsers before you can see the image at its full resolution.

It certainly looks like CG 39623 is a ventilated boxcar, but given the light paint and dark stencil, I think that it might be in company service and not revenue service.

I have noticed a lot of photographs of gondolas look like this, but I think it is some kind of illusion.

At first I thought this might be one of the taller AT&SF post Caswell gondolas, but those had a Pratt pattern for the truss, I believe this car has a Howe truss pattern.
